Hello everyone and HAPPY BOXINGDAY!!!!
Well I hope that you have survived the festivities and Santa has been good to you!
The moment Christmas is over I always start to think "Calendars", large, small, to give away or on the wall. Whatever, I decided to share a 12 x 12 Wall Calendar for 2013 with you and hopefully you will feel inspired to make one of your own.
These are the stamps and other products I used:
Calligraphic Mat 12
Girl with Clock
Time and Keys
Distress Inks: Mustard Seed, Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge, Aged Mahogany, Vintage Photo
Archival Ink: Jet Black
Perfect Pearl Mist: Patina Blue, Copper
I downloaded a 2013 calendar from the internet, printed it on light card and inked around it with some vintage photo. Next I made the top panel by cutting a piece of smooth white card to the size I wanted and then blended Mustard Seed and Wild Honey Distress Ink over it. Then I stamped the Calligraphic Mat 12 in Mustard Seed all over it and then over-stamped the Watch Background and Winged Wheel in several places with Wild Honey. Finally I stamped one of the keys from the Time and Keys set in two corners with Aged Mahogany.
For the vocal image I stamped the Girl With Clock in Archival Black ink, cut it out and coloured with Wild Honey and Aged Mahogany as shown. I mounted it onto the background with foam tape. The 2013 bit was computer generated and then matted on some scrapbook card from my stash.
Finally I matted it all first on some scrapbook paper, some beige card and finally a piece of 12 x 12 corrugated card which I inked with vintage photo.
That's it, hope you like it and I wish you all the most wonderful New Years celebrations and all the very best for 2013!!
